GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Education Realty Trust, Inc., is a self-managed and self-advised real estate investment trust, or REIT, incorporated in the state of Maryland in July 2004 to develop, acquire, own and manage collegiate housing communities located near university campuses. The Company develops collegiate housing communities for its own account and also provides third-party development consulting services on collegiate housing development projects for universities and other third parties. As of December 31, 2013, the Company owned 49 collegiate housing communities located in 23 states containing 27,982 beds in 9,933 apartment units on or near 41 university campuses. As of December 31, 2013, it provided third-party management services for 22 collegiate housing communities located in 10 states containing 11,722 beds in 3,777 apartment units on or near 18 university campuses. All of its assets are held by, and the Company conducts all of its activities through, Education Realty Operating Partnership, LP, the Company's Operating Partnership, and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, EDR Management Inc., or its Management Company, and EDR Development LLC, or its Development Company. University Towers Operating Partnership, LP, or the University Towers Partnership, which is its affiliate, holds, owns and operates its University Towers property located in Raleigh, North Carolina. The Company has three reportable segments: collegiate housing leasing, development consulting services and management services. Collegiate-housing communities are leased by the bed on an individual lease liability basis. Individual lease liability limits each resident's liability to his or her own rent without liability for a roommate's rent. The number of lease contracts that the Company administers is therefore equivalent to the number of beds occupied instead of the number of apartment units occupied. The Company provides development consulting services mainly to colleges and universities seeking to modernize their on-campus collegiate housing communities, to other third-party investors and to its collegiate housing leasing segment in order to develop communities for its ownership. Its development consulting services include the following: market analysis and evaluation of housing needs and options; cooperation with university in architectural design; negotiation of ground lease, development agreement, construction contract, architectural contract and bond documents; oversight of architectural design process; coordination of governmental and university plan approvals; oversight of construction process; design of layout, purchase and installation of furniture; pre-opening marketing to potential residents; and obtaining final approvals of construction. The Company provides management services for collegiate housing communities owned by educational institutions, charitable foundations, the Trust and others. Its management services cover all aspects of community operations, including res
